Discuss: Smart Manufacturing Beyond Downtime
IIOT-01
Editorial Director IoT Evolution World Chief Regional Officer KUKA Robotics Cofounder and CTO Armis
OT has two simple rules. If it’s running leave it alone, if its not, get it running. Those two rules do not sound like innovation is welcome. Yet IoT is delivering on Industrial 4.0 by increasing the data coming from sensors and enabling the SoftPLCs. How does smart manufacturing take us beyond measuring uptime and bring us to a new level of efficiency and production?

BB-03
CEO/Co-Founder NimbeLink
Most of the IoT is deployed remotely, either out in the field or in difficult to reach areas, and often have a life cycle of 5 years or more. Devices therefore often need to be activated once they are in place, and remotely maintained. In addition, these Things need to be kept up to date with security patches and software improvements. This session will be about what happens during and after initially deploying IoT.

IIOT-07
Sr Product Manager Syniverse
As 5G continues to grow as a powerful enabler of technologies, the number of vertical-market use cases continues to increase and produce more practical applications, including robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data that will contribute to analytics. These IoT applications will all need different requirements in terms of data capacity, speed, latency, reliability, coverage, location accuracy, and, most importantly, security. In this session, we will address these challenges by examining the network benefits of 5G for the IoT, including deployment considerations, building management issues, and security. Specifically, we will focus on how 5G will change how we think about connectivity for facilities, enterprise, and industrial applications.

For many companies industrial espionage is a real concern, for others the employees may bring in a virus accidentally. Regardless of the root cause, industrial manufacturers need to be prepared. While traditional networks were considered closed systems, today’s connected industrial capabilities must contend with brute force attacks. Hackers can use ML to support their attacks, so it’s clear that companies need to fight fire with fire. What security best practices will take us getting beyond identity and auditing?
